The Machine


understanding the machine

The ARP POV Sport is a revolutionary, electrical stimulation device. It possesses specifications and characteristics that are not found in any conventional, neuromuscular electrical stimulator (interferential, microcurrent, galvanic, Russian stim, iontophoresis). It is the training machine of the future!

The ARP POV Sport uses direct current (DC) compounded with a high frequency, double exponential, patented background waveform. This background wave is harmonious with the body. This significantly reduces skin and fatty tissue impedance, thus allowing much deeper penetration of the direct current without troublesome side effects such as skin burning.

The unique waveform, produced by the ARP POV Sport, creates minimal protective muscle contractions allowing active range of motion during training. This permits eccentric (lengthening) contractions to occur.  These lengthening contractions are critical to elite training results.

The Training


Preparing - Performing - Restoring


The ARP POV Sport protocols are approved for the following uses:

  • Customize Workouts
  • Stimulate Training
  • Improve Strength
  • Improve Speed
  • Improve Power
  • Improve Endurance
  • Increase Muscle
  • Decrease Bodyfat
  • Recover Faster
  • Reduce Fatigue
  • Reduce Injury

THE PoV DIFFERENCE


PREPARE - PERFORM - RESTORE


When training the human body, it reacts in both productive and non-productive ways. The ARP POV Sport allows the body to work more efficiently to eliminate these non-productive responses.

PRODUCTIVE RESPONSES TO TRAINING

  • Increased blood flow
  • Production of reparative cells
  • Remodeling of tissue

UNPRODUCTIVE RESPONSES TO TRAINING

  • Soreness
  • Brain turns on muscles to “protect”
  • Compensation patterns created
  • Pain from inappropriate muscle activity
  • Compensation patterns imprinted preventing normal function
Traditionally, athletes have followed the standard training progression below:

  1. Warm Up / Stretch
  2. Train
  3. Cool Down / Stretch
  4. Recover
The ARP POV Sport facilitates efficient training and recovering simultaneously. This is achieved by rapidly contracting and elongating muscles teaching the body that with every muscle contraction there must be an equal velocity and load elongation of its antagonistic muscle.  This generates increased strength, increased speed, increased joint and limb mobility, increased blood flow, reduced  inflammation, and decreased recovery time. TRAINING AND RECOVERY BECOME ONE AND THE SAME!

Application of the ARP POV Sport allows all involved muscles to turn on and turn off rapidly identifying compensation patterns. POV current is applied to stimulate an “overload” of those muscles to produce a subsequent detraining of the compensation patterns. Correct motor patterns are reestablished eliminating the imprinting of nonproductive compensation patterns. The combination of this detraining, along with the other unique effects of the ARP POV Sport, results in accelerated recovery and performance.
